Hair-Raising Trivia about Men's Hair

The upcoming political elections might not be the only reason men are tearing their hair out.

It seems like since the dawn of time, men have experienced a love-hate relationship with that crop of follicles sprouting from their scalps (and don't be fooled, ladies...we only make it LOOK like we could care less about it). Here's some interesting facts about men and their horrible, wonderful heads of hair throughout history:
  • Ancient Romans often had a slave on staff to act as their personal hairdressers.
  • Japanese samurai would cut hair their hair off as a sign of defeat. Even their wives would shave their heads and sometimes follow a spiritual life when they lost honor or a loved one.
  • Many African tribes used grease, red dirt and sometimes animal feces to style their locks.
  • Long hair and beards was usually the norm for men up until the early 20th century, when lice and flea infestations called for shorter haircuts.
When you're done perusing the trivia, check out our new article, Men's Hair Care, at MenScience and be thankful how far we've come!
